SEP use the latest Hilti PS 200 Ferroscan and Hilti PS 1000 X-Scan tools to provide our Concrete Scanning service.
This provides a non destructive means of locating reinforcing bars and measuring the depth of concrete cover.
This can also estimate the diameter of reinforcing bars found.
Employing the induction principal the scanner locates reinforcing bars accurately and reliably within concrete structures.
The results of the scans are displayed on the portable monitor as easily interpretable 2D images.
Scan data is recorded and can be transferred to a PC for further analysis, creation of assessment reports and for archival purposes.
Using this system SEP can detect reinforcing bars, pre-tensioning tendons, post-tensioning tendons, metal pipes, plastic pipes, electric cables and glass fibre cables buried within a concrete structure.
Equipped with three radar antennas the PS 1000 finds concealed objects at depths of up to 300mm.
Scan results are presented on the X-Scan display for immediate analysis or can be transferred to the PSA 100 monitor for further evaluation.
Thanks to its ease of operation, on-site handling and the easily interpretable 3D images of concealed objects it produces, the Hilti PS 1000 X-Scan system simply takes non-destructive structural inspection into a new era.
